FRom some site called Tudum:

Every Wallace & Gromit installment needs a great villain, and the new film is no exception. Titled Vengeance Most Fowl, the latest stop-motion entry follows our favorite inventor and his loyal pooch as they face off against a brand-new chicken opponent — wait a second, he’s removing something from his head. No! It can’t be! That’s no chicken! It’s Feathers McGraw!

Aardman’s four-time Academy Award-winning director Nick Park and Emmy Award-nominated Merlin Crossingham return with a brand-new epic adventure, Wallace & Gromit: Vengeance Most Fowl. In this next installment, Gromit’s concern that Wallace is becoming too dependent on his inventions proves justified, when Wallace invents a “smart” gnome that seems to develop a mind of its own. When it emerges that a vengeful figure from the past might be masterminding things, it falls to Gromit to battle sinister forces and save his master … or Wallace may never be able to invent again!

“Returning to Wallace and Gromit is like meeting up with family friends,” Park told Netflix, adding that he thinks fans share that sense of connection. “People respond to them because they feel so familiar. They’re like an old, married couple in some ways, who know each other so well –– it’s a sort of love/hate relationship, but when the chips are down, they are always there for each other. Wallace pushes Gromit’s loyalty to the extreme, and Gromit always wants Wallace to change. It’s something everyone can relate to.”

The original voice of Wallace, Peter Sallis, passed away in 2017. He’s succeeded by Ben Whitehead, an Aardman stalwart.

Wallace’s loyal canine companion Gromit is, of course, entirely silent, as is Feathers McGraw. Their personalities are entirely teased out by Aardman’s peerless team of stop-motion animators. Other cast members in Vengeance Most Fowl include Peter Kay (reprising his role as PC Mackintosh from Were-Rabbit), Lauren Patel, Reece Shearsmith, Diane Morgan, Adjoa Andoh, Muzz Khan, and Lenny Henry.

The wonderful theme, as well as terrific unreleased score is by Julian Nott, who I desperately would love to score this.
